It’s already that time of year! You know, when we decorate our homes with ugly, terrifying Halloween decorations. I love it! I try not to be too distasteful, but there is just something strangely fun about having creepy things dressing up my home; even if I only get one month!
My kids enjoy the projects more than anything, so I try to make a few things every year from home. Although I enjoy being all artsy and stuff, I also like quick and easy. It should be FUN, right!? I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite DIY Homemade Halloween decorations that the adults and kids will love! They are all pretty painless but also very effective.
1. Glowing Eyes
Toilet paper rolls and glow sticks? Well, yes, if you want to scare all of the cute little trick-or-treaters. Of course you do. Just hide them in your bushes, shrubs and trees, and watch as your glowing eyes terrorize the neighborhood.
2. Eyeballs In A Tree
What better way to give your trees a little personality? The hardest part of this project is getting them up in the tree (that’s what husbands are for), but the rest is quick and easy! Just go check out Anna’s Instructions (you can buy the plain white beach balls here), or even buy these giant eyeball beach balls if you’d rather take the easy way out. 🙂
3. Bloody Handprint Clings
What’s Halloween without bloody handprints all over your windows and mirrors? Make them yourself with Elmer’s glue and red food coloring! They cling to just about any smooth surface. I like this idea for the inside of a glass front door and surrounding windows. Creepy!
